Throw and eat snowballs with friends! Extra fun with a candy cane powder!

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

  • Powdered sugar for dusting

Steps

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Crush the candy canes into a rough powder. Set aside.
  3. Cream the butter, powdered sugar, vanilla salt. Then mix in the flour and walnuts until a nice dough forms.
  4. Roll the dough into balls and place on a cookie sheet. Bake 15 minutes. Don't over-bake (golden brown is too far).
